Oscar Peterson At The Concertgebouw

LP (Item 449697) Verve, 1957 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


4.80 5

An unusual live date for Oscar Peterson – in that it wasn't actually officially recorded by Verve, but done by a fan and handed over to Norman Granz at a later date! Given that origin, though, the material is quite strong – recorded with an edge that's slightly earthier than usual for Verve at the time, but with a clarity that still beautifully displays Peterson's dynamic work on the keys – as well as the gentle guitar backing of Herb Ellis and the always-great bass tones of Ray Brown. Titles include "Daahoud", "Bluesology", "Budo", "Evrev", and "We'll Be Together Again". (Verve Inc pressing with deep groove.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Blue Note, 1970/1980. Very Good
One of Hank Mobley's last recordings for Blue Note, and a record that really shows him stretching it out – hitting territory hardly imagined on his earlier hardbop sides! The album's still somewhat inside, but the overall feel is much more spacious than before – a sound that has some ... LP, Vinyl record album
